2016 July General Meeting and Flower and Rose Show

On this Visitor Night our speaker Marion Jarvis spoke on  ‘Hardy Gems for Ontario Gardens’ and she had a very attentive audience.

We had 80 entries and 13 exhibitors in our flower and Rose Show. In July 2014 we had 146 entries and 120 in 2015. I think Mother Nature has a lot to do with that
– a cold long spring – NO RAIN – and now we are all melting –
BUT
what was entered was beautiful and our designs to die for – I just can’t get over the imagination put into the designs with wood – congratulations to you all – you are doing a super job!

1st place in the Lily category were given to Jenni Murrell and 2nd place to Linda Becic
(Jenni apparently went out every day to get rid of the Red Lily Beetle and her off-springs)
